Enrollment Management and University Marketing
Enrollment Management has primary responsibility for the development and coordination of a campus-wide plan to recruit and help students persist on to graduation. Enrollment is now part of the Division of Academic Affairs under the leadership of the Vice Provost of Enrollment Management.
Enrollment growth and marketing success requires open communication and collaboration among faculty, staff, and administrators across reporting lines. An essential component within the division is the creation and on-going evaluation of a strategic plan that recognizes and embraces the best principles and fair practices of recruiting and promotion. Our intent is to admit those students who have a credible chance for success, based on a set of uniform standards.
Of equal importance is the design of a marketing plan that correctly positions the University in a highly competitive market, while recognizing that student satisfaction and academic success are our ultimate goals.
